Despite being a spotless Sun in white light conditions there was still detail to be observed at H-alpha frequencies.

Telescope used was a 15cm F8 refractor, stopped down to 8cm to give an F15 system.  A sequence of four AVIs were taken from 1123UT to 1127UT. All four AVIs were processed using RegiStax 6 and enhanced in GIMP 2.6.  The four images were combined using Windows ICE.  The final image size is 1040 x 2268 pixels.
